Cambridge Resilience Forum

A forum where leaders and professionals, by exchanging ideas, opinions and experience, learn to build resilient organisations and a sustainable society

BACKGROUND 

The Cambridge Resilience Forum is a project of the South African office of the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL). CPSL has extensive global experience working with leaders to deepen their understanding of the social, environmental and economic context in which they operate. Through their access to the wider University and their affiliation with HRH The Prince of Wales they have a strong convening power and ability to draw top thinkers and experts.

CPSL’s other activities include running senior executive seminars, offering tailor-made learning programs to organisations and facilitating high-level leadership meetings on critical strategic issues.

We live in a world which changes faster than our capacity to learn. This forces us to cope with more complex situations leaving us with less chance to predict and even imagine the future.

The Cambridge Resilience Forum creates an enabling environment where leaders and professionals learn by exchanging ideas, opinions and experience in order to build more resilient organisations for what is likely to be a turbulent future.
